Haris Rauf defended himself on social media after a clip of him seemingly embroiled in a physical altercation went viral.

The footage allegedly showed Haris getting physical with a group of men in Florida.

The clip showed Haris walking in the city with his wife and appearing to lose his temper with someone.

Haris apparently ran to hit the man, and his wife tried to stop him.

More people joined in in the attempt to break up the scuffle.

In the video, Haris was heard saying: “He must be Indian.”

The man replied: “I am from Pakistan.”

Following the online circulation of the clip, Haris took to X to explain his actions, suggesting that a disrespectful remark was made towards his wife.

He wrote: “As public figures, we are open to receiving all kinds of feedback from the public.

“They are entitled to support or criticise us.

“Nevertheless, when it comes to my parents and my family, I will not hesitate to respond accordingly.

“It is important to show respect towards people and their families, irrespective of their professions.”

Haris Rauf found support from the Pakistan Cricket Board, with chairman Mohsin Naqvi saying:

“Such actions against our players are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

“Those who are involved must immediately apologise to Haris Rauf, failing which we will pursue legal action against the individual responsible.”

Pakistani cricketer Shadab Khan also defended Haris on X.

He stated: “It is the right of fans to criticise us for performances.

“It is not okay to attack anyone personally in their family’s presence.

“How would you feel if someone attacked you personally while with family?”

In May 2024, Haris Rauf was named in Pakistan’s squad for the 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

In 2021, Haris revealed a crush on the television star Maya Ali.

He said: “I would like to go to dinner with Maya Ali.”

When asked which country he would like to have dinner with Maya, the cricketer replied:

“No other country, Pakistan is the best.

“Which other country is better than Pakistan?”

Fans reacted saying Haris Rauf and Maya would make a good couple.

One fan wrote: “Maya, give our bowling champion a chance. I feel sorry for him.”

Another said: “Haris is such a gentleman. I think they would look great together.”

In December 2022, Haris Rauf married his classmate Muzna Masood Malik.
